Thank you for signing our community petition and sending a message to Labor Mayor Marianne Saliba and Labor Shellharbour City Councillors that you want the Albion Park Rail bypass - delivered.
Since securing the more than half a billion in funding, I have been frustrated by Marianne Saliba and Shellharbour Labor that have played politics and sought to frustrate this project.
I've got the money - I now need the land.
Shellharbour City Council is delaying the project in an attempt to blackmail the NSW Government into funding other projects that are a council responsibility.
The message from our community is clear - just get on with it. Get out of the way Marianne!
At the Shellharbour Council elections on 9 September, I ask that you elect a council that will work with me to deliver this project.
There are 10 teams contesting your Shellharbour City Council elections on 9 September - only one of them will work with me to get the Albion Park Rail bypass delivered.
I ask that you back Nathan Cattell and our Shellharbour Liberal team. Put our community first - and Labor/Independent wreckers last.
